T minus 1 hour – Myself, Kav and Ashley are boarding Amtrak Cascades 509 leaving at 5:30 from Seattle and arriving in Portland at 9pm – so STOKED.
By the time we get there the opening afterparty should be in full swing- and turns out the Midnight Mystery Ride leaves from the afterparty show.
This weekend is going to rule.
Opening Night Blowout at Wieden +Kennedy
Ladies and Gentlemen, this is where we get down!
Wieden + Kennedy, the global ad agency behind Teams of Portland and some of the finest creative work in the world, is taking the concept of an opening party and blowing it up beyond imagination. In the works is a special multi-media bike builder exhibition featuring their personal rides. Expect beer, music, and blaring spectacle the likes of which you have never seen.
Wieden + Kennedy

OREGON MANIFEST will feature an unconquerable mix of custom framebuilders, bike-centric vendors, bike culture squads, and blowout parties, crowned with a Sunday cross race to bring home the glory.
